Tojiro Sha Ra Ku Mono Tomato Knife 13cm

The Tojiro Sha Ra Ku Mono Tomato Knife 13cm - the serrated edge makes it ideal for slicing foods with somewhat tough skins and soft interiors—such as avocados.

It works well on sausages, especially those with a tougher casing, and with hard cheeses. The Shun Classic Serrated Utility Knife is wonderful for a multitude of small tasks where more precise cuts are needed.

Care Instructions:

  • Do not wash in the dishwasher, as this may cause corrosion of the blades
  • To clean, run under hot water with a small amount of detergent and dry thoroughly
  • Store in a dry, moisture-free place to avoid rusting or discolouration
  • If the knives are not used for an extended period of time, wrap them in a dry cloth or newspaper and store them in a dry place; the hygroscopic paper will keep the blades dry and the oil from the printing ink prevent corrosion
  • Select the correct knife for the task to ensure you will get the best cutting results and you are also easy on the blades
  • To keep the handles on your Tojiro knives in pristine condition, we recommend using camellia oil. It is also good protection for the blade but must be removed from the blade before cooking. Do not use wax, use at your own risk.

Knife Sharpening

Tojiro whetstones and accessories have been developed to cater for the needs of enthusiastic cooks to professional chefs and are available in a wide range of abrasive grades:

  • Coarse (#220-#400) for repairing chips and reshaping the blade
  • Medium (#800-#1000) for regular edge maintenance
  • Fine (#3000-#8000) for polishing and hardening to a razor finish

Double Edge Whetstone Sharpening

To maintain a keen edge on your Tojiro knives, we highly recommend periodic honing with a whetstone.

Our most popular whetstone is Tojiro’s #1000/#3000 combination stone, but you may wish to start with a coarser grit for dull or damaged knives and fine-tune your edge using a high gritstone.

Tojiro recommends sharpening using the “70/30” rule - spend 70% of your time honing the primary cutting side of your knife, and 30% on the reverse side removing burrs.

If you’re right-handed, the primary cutting side is the right side of the knife when held in a natural cutting position; if you’re left-handed, it’s the left side of the knife.

      Top tomato knife

      Very quick and easy. Small delay in receiving the item but it was worth the wait. Beautiful knife. Razor sharp, super light.
